Recycled Rara Passport Bag
Travel the world in style and good conscience with an accessory that's both eco-friendly and socially aware. And for those wanting a measure of extra security, this bag is compact enough to wear discreetly beneath an over-shirt.
In the spirit of traditional Haitian rara bands -- who create instruments from coffee cans and other discarded items to play in street festivals -- each compact bag is handmade by artisans in Haiti out of recycled materials as part of the RARA project. The RARA Project helps underprivileged Haitian women generate income to provide for their families, and trains them in skills such as sewing and weaving, all while promoting environmental responsibility.
Each purchase provides an extra donation to GROW -- Girls' Right to Opportunity Worldwide. Through this program girls in developing countries are provided the opportunity to attend secondary school, in turn providing them with a economically better, healthier future.
